Hello, you don't even need one gig of data in order to run that phone. It all depends on how often you're going to use it for listening to YouTube and stuff like that. I am only used .20 MB at the most with the phone. I recommend getting the I am from a company called consumer Sellier if it all possible in your area. They have a plan just for five bucks a month that will give you 5 mbar and unlimited text and talk which will be more than enough for this phone. And if anybody decides to do this offer, please contact me as I will give you an additional $10 off of your first month just by giving you a referral. If you've never been with this company before.

The down side is that you have to install the battery and sim card, which is something I've never done with a cell phone, and I'm not particularly mechanically inclined. Otherwise, it's a good deal.

Re: is victor stream second generation the same as victor stream new generation

I think victor Vibes were around in this century, but quite early.
They used cds.
They looked liked a clamshell style cd player. Ancient technology these
days.
I had one for a short while.
The controls were not intuitive in my recollection.

Connecting to the internet with windows.10

Hi all,

I have a new router and modem as of this afternoon from Spectrum. Unfortunately the technician said he couldn’t set things up for me as they’ve done in the past, at least not directly on the computer and he couldn’t make the my spectrum app behave so he could do it for me there. How do I get to the area where I’ll find my I guess it’s called a network name and password so I can put that info in and get online on my laptop? Actually if someone can tell me where to go in windows 10 to get a list of available network connections I can likely handle it from there.

Thanks.

Troy

Hi Joanne,

The only brand new victor Reader Stream being sold is the Victor
Reader Stream 2nd Gen also called latest or newest gen. The other
portable Humanware book reader is the Victor Reader Trek which is its
own device, not the next Stream or anything like that, has the GPS and
the above described Stream bundled together in one device hence the
higher price.

I hope that helps.

Stay well,

Laz

Re: BlindShell Classic

Laz
 

Hi Abbie,

A couple of points to consider to get the most bang for your buck...

We don't charge you to activate your phone. You pay for your phone
plan and we activate it for you before we send it out to you.

The most affordable plan we offer is just $25.99 and includes
unlimited calls and texts and 3GB of data a high speed. However if you
sign up for auto refill you get a discount of anywhere from a couple
of dollars to $5 off your monthly plan. The higher cost plans just
provide you with more GB of high speed data.

We provide the direct link to that tutorial from Mystic Access as well
as the download link to the Blindshell Classic manual.

We install both the SIM card and the battery for you.

As may have already been stated, we will replace your phone to help
you avoid any hassles of having to send it anywhere out of the country
for repairs.

Regards,

Laz

Re: WINDOWS10 INSTALLATION TOOLKIT: A QUESTION

You can absolutely do this. You can just copy the upgrade assistant executible, but you do need an active internet connection to perform the upgrade.

Hi Abbie,

Sounds great, go for it if that's what you want. You do realize that you cannot add external programs like AIRA or BARD Mobile? This is a feature phone, not a full smart phone like the Smart Vision2.

Playing an mp3 during a Skype call

Hi group,

 

I’m on Windows 10 with current Jaws and Skype 8.5. I have followed steps on getting a sound file to play during a Skype call. Unfortunately, it is not working for me. If anyone has ideas on what I should double check, or other steps to accomplish this, I would appreciate it.

 

Thank you,

Yes, the Victor Stream second generation is the same as the new generation victor stream.

The victor stream trek is the  same as the second gen with the trek added on.

Re: BlindShell Classic

Gerald Levy
 


Is there a compelling reason why you meed this phone right now?  If you are not comfortable  installing the battery and sync card yourself, I suggest waiting until the health crisis is over so that you can visit a phone store or Best Buy store in person and have them do it for you. Before you order this phone from Mystic Access, contact them and ask them whether they are willing to take care of warranty repairs and service, like Laz Mesa is willing to do.  If they give you a run around, tell them to take a hike, and order the phone from Laz for the same price.  The fact that he is willing to go the extra mile for his customers speaks volumes about his integrity and helpfulness.  Other blind-products merchants may also sell you this phone, but if you have a problem they may leave you in the lurch to fend for yourself.  The warranty is very vague about obtaining repairs.  Keep in mind that the BlindShell is manufactured overseas in the Czech Republic, so if you have a  problem with it and you have to  return it to them yourself, you may not see it again for a very long time, if at all, given the current international health crisis.

Hi, Heather.

 

I went to the rent cafe site using NVDA and Chrome and it looks accessible.

 

It's much more accessible than the one my complex is using.  It's a realpage.com site and I can't get it to list any links even though I can tab around and hear things being listed as links.

 

Using arrow keys or the NVDA command to list links does nothing, but I can tab to a link and use the enter key to activate the link.

 

Good luck.

Re: bluetooth keyboard for use with smart phone?

Olusegun -- Victory Associates LTD, Inc.
 

Hello Keith S.:

In truth, I have not read up much on neuropathy in the fingers. I ought to
though, especially since I am in the DME business line where keeping up with
the CONSTANT CHANGING RULES has become nightmarish for me and several chaps
in the business.

Back to the bluetooth keyboard thingie; the keys may be CRAMPED TOGETHER
somewhat, but I've HAD NO PROBLEMS typing and navigating on My Shiny Android
toys using it. Granted, I only use it when the need to TYPE REAL LONG TEXTS
become necessary. The keys do have to be cramped together somewhat to allow
for the trifold methinks!

That said, based on the info you shared in your post, I'll suggest you take
a hard look at the Logitech line. The K380, K480, and a few others are
popular amongst blind bluetooth keyboard users. Matias bluetooth keyboard
is also popular, does cost a tad more. The RiVo2 is yet another; many iOS
enthusiasts run with this one, but it is my understanding that it does work
with Android toys as well. It specifically designed for use by the blind,
looks like LS&S Group has it, and Devine Medical sells it through
amazon.com/ If memory serves, it does cost well over $300xx; not sure you
want to SHELL OUT that much on a bluetooth keyboard.

I'll defer to others to FILL IN THE MISSING BLANKS with respect to the
Logitech offerings; my last rendezvous with a Logitech bluetooth keyboard
caused me to acquire one that DIDN'T FOLD and also required me to type in a
paring code which I've never had to do with any other bluetooth keyboard I
play ball with. So, I gave it away to an international student I mentor.
Good luck, and I hope you'll find something you can play with; may be when
the lockdowns are lifted, you could take a trip to a nearby computer store
and play with a few bluetooth keyboards before purchasing one.

Sincerely,
Olusegun
Denver, Colorado
